Research Farm: Ludhiana, Punjab, India

Punjab, the land of five rivers has earned the title of ‘Granary of India’ or ‘India’s Breadbasket’ as it makes up for about 17% of India’s wheat production (second highest amongst Indian states and union territories after Uttar Pradesh, the latter producing more than 30% of the nation’s supply).

BISA in collaboration with ICAR, CIMMYT and Punjab Agricultural University (PAU) established its state-of-the-art research facility widely known as BISA ‘Farms of Future’.

BISA research farm in Ludhiana provides farm ready research – from setting up climate resilient villages and developing viable alternatives to rice residue burning to facilitating open exchange of elite germplasm and cutting-edge technologies – reflects not only the vision and approach of BISA but contributes in the state’s large -scale impact.
